There's multiple ways you could see him contributing (RB, maybe S, returner, emergency QB, etc.) but a redshirt year on the practice squad first sounds like the ticket most likely. The team isn't going to keep 5 RBs (incl a FB) so he'd have to beat out Ford there for a spot. To stick as a reserve S/return man he's gonna need time to learn a new position. Even as a RB, which seems like an easier transition, he's gonna have to learn blitz pickups and receiving. We are probably looking at 2015 for him.
